Saville: Millwall must move on from disappointing draw as Play-Off fight intensifies

5 April 2018

George Saville has urged his Millwall team-mates to use the 'gutting' draw at Ipswich as motivation to push into The Championship's top six.

The Lions huffed and puffed at Portman Road last weekend but passed up the opportunity to move into the Play-Off places.

Now Neil Harris' men must prepare to host a formidable Bristol City side with a top six spot potentially at stake again.

"We will get that missed chance of our system quickly and will go again on Saturday," Saville, who scored his 10th goal of the campaign in Suffolk, told

"We were a little gutted after the Ipswich game because we felt like we dropped two points.

"We had more than enough chances to win that game but we weren't able to. A point away from home is good but I feel we deserved the win."

Goal difference is all that separates The Lions and Saturday's opponents and neither side will have a psychological advantage after playing out a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate.

"Of course this is a big game for us, each game will be crucial until the end of the season," Saville added.

"It's a match that is back at The Den. We will have our fans behind us, making plenty of noise and it's another chance to get three points and climb up the table.

"Our season remains in our hands and we have to take it game by game and hope to be in the mix at the end of the season."
